Hi all,

As many of you know, we have been lucky enough to work alongside Julian and Carlos of Gravesend Recordings since we moved into the studio at Silent Barn. They have helped us and supported us in innumerable ways as we operated our two companies separately.

So we are very excited to announce that as of January 2016 we will be joining forces with Gravesend Recordings. On the surface, not much will change — we will still be working out of the studio booking clients and continuing to make music with amazing artists. However, we will be dissolving our name and strengthening our community as Gravesend Recordings.

We feel so much gratitude to have been able to build what we did. So many of the inspiring musicians who we’ve worked with have shaped our lives and made us continue to want to do this. We are eager and hopeful for what is to come.

Thank you all so much for your continued support and we look forward to working with you at Gravesend Recordings!

Love,

Kegan and Dara

DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE NICE GUY Doubting Thomas Cruise Control

Rarely, it seems, does visual accompaniment directly reflect what’s spoken in a song—a literal interpretation. However, Doubting Thomas Cruise Control’s new video for “Nice Guy” off their Remember Me John Lydon Forever LP, can almost speak the song’s entire message without the music. The video, dire…

The Yin Yangs Premiere ’21st Century,’ from Their New Tape Taste

so happy to finally share with all of you
the Yin Yangs premiered their first single '21st Century' via Bedford and Bowery - what a delight working with these dudes. they may put on a badboy front, but they are sweet sweet angels.

It's been a big summer for the Yin Yangs, the Brooklyn garage-psych-punk outfit you've most likely seen at any number of DIY venues around town. Right before they took off on a Southern tour, the trio played Gigawatts Fest back in July alongside ...

sick review of Madam West's album

Madam West characterize themselves as “misanthropic plastic neosoul pop,” perhaps sarcastically, though, because if true, it could only be in the best possible way. Channeling everyone from Frente! to 4AD black sheep Tindersticks, (though the list of greats could go on), the four piece make up for a…

Judging by the title of Doubting Thomas Cruise Control's forthcoming LP and its first single, it wouldn't be unprecedented to say that this is a band concerned with paying homage to decades past. Named after a town in Norway that hosted the 1994 winter Olympics, "Lillehammer" is the first conceptual…

Their sole release to date is C E N T R E, a two-song digital release, but their debut EP is forthcoming. The new video for “W A X I N G / W A I T I N G” is minimal but engaging…

10 February 2015; it was cold out, and the sidewalks were icy, but not as frozen as they were on Friday night when I had gone to Palisades to catch Paper Streets opening for empire! empire!

The supremacy of real estate and capital that so many carp about has actually helped define a new aesthetic for the city and forced new artistic centers to grow.

TRUE HOMIES PLAYING THE TRUTH

The Yin Yangs have been making ripples across the Brooklyn borough for their brand of loud, fuzzy psych rock that simple cannot disappoint on a Friday night. The jams that come from the Brooklyn three piece seem to float on air, reaching a hypnotic environment worthy of Burning Man; nothing cuts too…
